Yesterday, the Swedish Consulate in NYC hosted a Midsommar Celebration in Battery Park City, downtown Manhattan. dievca biked down after work to see the chaos. According to her friend, it was quite similar to what goes on in Sweden for Midsommar. Singing, dancing, eating, drinking while wearing floral crowns. A celebration of the Earth, topped off with the raising of the phallic Maypole (something about balls and a cock piercing Mother Earth. etc.)
It was too crazy to try to get food, so a bodega further uptown offered simple fair and the Hudson River offered a spectacular view.
Today, dievca is working and then heading out to watch the Germany/Sweden World Cup game. Afterward. dievca is hosting a small cocktail party for her visiting friend.
Have a fabulous, close to Midsommar Saturday. 🥂🥃🍸🍺
